As funny as I find this entire story, let’s face it, healthcare in America should be treated like the criminal conspiracy that it is.
Don’t agree? Then by all means, please explain to me why helping other human beings stay alive and healthy should be monetized.
For example, despite the actual wording in these statements, tell me how these two situations actually differ:
1. “If you ever want to see your child again, you must pay $10,000 in small unmarked bills.”
2. “I’m sorry ma’am, but your son has a serious health issue that is fatal if not treated properly. However, it appears as though you have not hit your insurance copay limit, so this would cost you about $10,000 out of pocket… and it’s your only option.”
